Patris Studio and Gallery: The New Chapter
I write this on Thursday October 27, 2016. My angel investor and I now own Patris Studio and Gallery. It is exactly 2 months to the very day that Micah, the realtor, texted me that the building was going up for sale. It is a miracle story and I am humbled and grateful that my life's dream to have Patris Studio and Gallery in Oak Park has been granted.
From all practical points of view, it looked like the end of Patris Studio and Gallery in Oak Park. I didn't qualify to buy the building, I didn't have the money. I was unable to find another studio in Oak Park no matter where I looked. Was this the end?
I walked into church one Sunday morning, devastated at the multiple offers coming in to purchase the building. I saw this image on the screen and knew it was time to step out in faith and trust God to do a miracle as he did in the past for David when he triumphed over Goliath. I was up against a Goliath-sized situation, but I believed that the battle for my studio could be won from the Heavenly realms.
And on this day, Sept. 27, 2016 the heavens opened up and grace poured down like rain upon me.
